Never underestimate the power of a potion. In one of Donizetti’s most beloved comic operas, a love-struck peasant is determined to win the affections of the village beauty. Knowing she favors the attention of a boastful Sergeant, there’s only one thing to do – employ the help of a scheming traveling doctor and his cure-all “magic” potion.

Set in the Italian Riviera in the 1950s, this lighthearted comedy overflows with beautiful melodies and charming arias, as the elixir creates just as many problems as it solves.
